    Pretty baby kitty, Honchey! Enjoy, because they grow up too fast.

    That sleet is treacherous, QNS. We had that same weather a week ago... ice on the ground for about 3 days before our temps came back up. Now it's warm again! Probably at least 70 this morning. Mississippi weather is really schizophrenic. And the people here do NOT know how to drive on snow and ice, when we get it.

    JeanieG, I love the fussy cut center on your stars. Are you going to do that for all of them? The purple center in your green stars is nice too.
    Hope to show you mine before too long. I want to sew more before I take a picture...

    I finally got a flannel backed tablecloth for a design wall, and hung it up on the wall upstairs, where my 301 machines are. I started hanging all my FW30's blocks and was just amazed by them! I had forgotten how beautiful those little gems are. I'll try to take a pic for you, of all of them on the design wall. I was trying to figure out a nice layout for them.

    What are you all planning to use for a background and/or sashing? Cream is nice, but I also have some of that poison green that was used so much back then. I might try the green and if I can't stand it I'll use cream.

    SBG, neutral are nice on slashing. Whatever 'pops' the blocks will work.

    Honchey, love that little kitten! Cute and intelligent looking cat.

    It is icy outside; so thankful we have a warm home and food on hand. Everyone please stay safe.

    Progress on wild flying geese....ten blocks done....a good start on the eleventh block.

    Honchey, Pretty kitty. :-)

    I've got some of my FWS blocks sewn together on point. I'm not going to use sashes.

    10 flying geese blocks-- that's coming along!

    Whoo hoo! I've only got the border to do now! I posted this picture over in the BH MQ Challenge thread, but thought I'd post here too in case you are not watching that thread.

    QNS, the pale yellows are from you! I've used 10 different prints, but it doesn't show up well in the picture. I just loooove that pale yellow you sent with the large white dots. Thanks again!

    SBG, how different our quilt tops look! :-) Yours is more cheerful looking than mine. I think my green is what you called the 'poison green' when you were talking about the FWS setting fabric. lol It's one of my favorite colors! I never imagined it as poison though --always more like... sea green, or moss green... :-p

    Very pretty givio! Poison green is usually really bright yellow green color, not so soft as in your quilt..these are examples of poison green I found through a google search..I have a few in my CW repros...back to bookwork...no work or school today...

    Love your quilt, Givio! All those scrappy blues and neutrals make it lively. That's the green I was talking about. I really don't know what a poison green is, that just looked like it to me.

    I think, OK you got more ice than we did; hope it goes away soon.

    Our temperatures are warming up all week and ice will be all gone tomorrow...then on Thursday, it will be above 50 degrees. Progress on the wild flying geese...made geese for two more blocks.

    Givio, love your BH quilt! So glad you have used the fabric that I sent to you. No way could I used all that up before my time on earth is up...makes me sooooo happy to know how you used it.

    2 hour late start tomorrow, but if rural roads don't improve, it'll be closed. Temps are hovering around 32, so things don't thaw, they freeze...more bookwork done...going to sew for a while...night all...

    QNS, for the backing of my BH quilt I'm using a light yellowy gold print you sent me! You sent big strips and scrap chunks of it. Looks like pieces a longarmer cut off after quilting something for you? Anyway, it was the right yellow for my quilt back so I sewed all the pieces together, added some of a pink I had, and voila! Quilt back. Will try to post a photo later.

    OK, I was lurking and saw the ADORABLE valentine-y mini quilt you sent in the swap. Too cute! Love those letters full of conversation hearts. Great job on that.

    Just finished a donation quilt tonight.

    It's kind of a big deal for me to get two quilts QUILTED. I make tops like they are going out of style, but the quilting of them is quite another thing. Not my favorite part.

    Here's a fun article by Barbara Brackman on "poison green". I'm still trying to get a handle on what it is...

    Boy do you get a lot done....nice donations...Thanks Bonnie...this was very interesting...I didn't know the "poison" part of the equation or that the color was of varying values...

    The little heart quilt was fun to make in case anyone's interested...tonight I put together a little dolly quilt with reds and creams for kids' fundraiser the end of the month...have quilting (minimal) and binding to do.

    OK, love your 'valentine' themed mini quilt. Cute.

    SBG, great finish on your donation quilts! They both look 'neat' and cozy quilts.

    Weather here has warmed up, stayed above freezing last night and everyone seems to be racing their car motors by our place like they haven't gotten to drive for a month! Hope I can get more done in the QR today. May it be a good one for you.

    SBG, I saved the MM NYD MQ directions. I wasn't up for another mystery so soon after doing the BH one. Your top looks great! It seems like a good block pattern to use for 2.5 candy squares, even though she suggests using lights/mediums/darks for it. I'm dreaming of what I can do with 1,750 candies...

    We've had some cold weather here too, lots of ice lately. One day it will be warm enough to get a cold drizzle of rain, the next that will be all frozen. Makes for bad driving.

    OK, in time to be ready for Valentine's day! You are on the ball. I usually start a holiday item during the holiday time, and it's about 9 or 10 months early (ready for the next year). :-)

    givio...this quilt uses +2400 squares, but they are 2" cuts. I have made this: simple construction, just make fewer units...I used a navy sashing in my quilt..it's waiting to be quilted

    That Growing Up Odd has been on my bucket list for a long time... Love it!

    I posted a tute for a tote bag in the Tutorials section. It's made of 2.5" candies, if you could use a tote bag.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...l-t285108.html

    If you wanted it bigger you could make it with a base of 16-patches rather than 9-patches. Would use up more candy that way.

    Some of you have seen this, but this is my version of the quilt I linked to. I chose to put gold cornerstones in and even threw in random HST's. Name:  Odd man out.jpg

    Oh... GASP! That is such a beautiful scrappy, OK. It looks great with the bigger squares and dark sashing. You did a beautiful job.

    Thanks, Bonnie, it is 2" cuts not the 2 1/2" as I suggested to givio. I have added a wide border to make it 84 x 84 square; I have a wide flannel backing for it and it needs to be quilted...back to farm bookwork tonight.

    OK, I like yours better than the link. Changing the white to black made a huge difference, didn't it!? Thanks for the pic of it.

    Ah... can't really tell from the photo. I agree with Givio that the black sashing is more striking with all the other fabrics. Love it.
